    Despite numerous supply-chain upheavals inflicted by disasters and large-scale events— including hurricanes, factory fires, business mergers, and tsunamis— most companies still found themselves unprepared for the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, following the outbreak in China, 70% of organizations were still in data collection and assessment mode, manually trying to identify which of their suppliers had a site in the specific locked-down regions of China. The disruption was significant and far reaching.

    In contrast, those companies that invested in mapping their supply networks, emerged relatively unscathed. Accordingly, supply network mapping needs to be part of any company’s risk mitigation strategy.

    The objective of this course is to increase the knowledge, skills and abilities in supplier Cost Analysis and Supplier Financial Analysis. Cost analysis is a powerful tool for supply managers and can change the conversation with suppliers to open new opportunities for savings and value creation. Financial Analysis can also provide useful information that will lead to insights about whether your supplier is making too little or too much profit, whether they are generating cash or burning cash and if new risks may have arisen in recent reporting periods.
